How to find your Kindle email address

To read PDF on Kindle and start the file transfer process, you need to know the unique email address associated with your Kindle e-reader, tablet, or app.



This e-mail address is officially referred to as the send-to-Kindle e-mail address.


Your Kindle submission email address is not the email address you use to log into Amazon's website or apps. Nor is the email you use to log into Amazon services like video game streaming site, Twitch.

It's completely understandable if you've forgotten your send email address to Kindle as most people wouldn't use it much if at all. Fortunately, it is very easy to find and can be found in the section Settings operating system on your Kindle itself or on the page Settings on your Kindle app.

Your Kindle submission email address can also be found on this page on the Amazon website by clicking the ellipsis next to your favorite Kindle app or device.


This page also contains information about installed Audible apps that do not support the Send to Kindle feature. If you can't see an email address, double-check to make sure you don't see the details of an Audible app.

Each Kindle send email address is completely different for each device, so if you want to send a PDF to multiple devices, you'll need to email the file to multiple Kindle send email addresses.
